Pakistan and the IMF will continue technical level talks until May 23
In a nerve-wracking development, the incumbent government, after much deliberations, has finally agreed to implement most of the demands of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), raising the possibility of the country “coming back on track economically” and receiving the next IMF loan tranche.
Talks between IMF and Pakistan continued for the second consecutive day. The Pakistani negotiation team includes Finance Secretary Hamed Yaqoob Sheikh, Federal Board of Revenue Chairman Asim Ahmad and State Bank of Pakistan’s acting Governor Dr Murtaza Syed.
